Russian leader Dmitry Rogozin meets Doval, discusses space, strategic issues

New Delhi, July 12 (UNI) Director General of Russia’s Roscosmos and former Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin has held detailed high-level talks with National Security Adviser Ajit Doval here.

According to an official release, the meeting that took place on Thursday was also attended by senior representatives of Roscosmos, Glavcosmos, Energia and Energomash from the Russian side.

Both sides agreed to take a strategic approach to elevate bilateral cooperation to the next level, keeping in mind the special and privileged partnership and India’s priorities such as 'Make in India' programme.

The possibilities for production of space systems in India were an important part of the talks. Cooperation in futuristic technologies including new space systems, rocket engines, propellants and propulsion systems, spacecrafts and launch vehicle technology were also discussed.

There have been frequent contacts between the two space agencies to finalise the details of the Gaganyaan Mission, which will carry Indian astronaut to space in 2022, to coincide with India’s 75th anniversary of Independence.

"Russia has promised all assistance for India’s Human Space Flight Mission Gaganyaan.Details regarding cooperation for the Gaganyaan Mission were discussed. In addition, the Russian side stated that they would like to see India participate in the International Space Station, and offered its full support for this purpose," the statement said.

Cooperation in space has emerged as a key area of cooperation in the high technology sector between India and Russia.

"Today, there is new respect for India’s rapidly growing capabilities in outer space, and Russia sees India as a key partner for promoting peaceful uses of outer space," it said.

The talks between the two sides are expected to have firmed up issues to be discussed during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Vladivostok to attend the Eastern Economic Forum in September.

Russian President Vladimir Putin had invited Mr Modi during SCO Summit at Bishkek to be the Chief Guest for the Eastern Economic Forum to be held in Vladivostok in the first week of September as the two sides are likely to widen scope of their economic partnership especially in Arctic region in sectors such as energy, transfer of technology, and joint projects under Make in India initiative.
